Pursed Lips Breathing (PLB) can be used to recondition physiological responses of stressfull memories from inhaling (stressful) to an exhaling (relaxing) behavioral pattern. Try it, imagine any visual image that makes you anxious (possibly your boss, coworker, ex-spouse, etc.) and simultaneously exhale like you would want to blow a candle. Blow as much air out as possible while simultaneously visualizing this image in your mind.
Your brain now conditions this visual stimulus with the parasympathetic tone that is being induced by respiratory network in the brainstem during exhalation. The next time you are confronted with this image, your brain will trigger the parasympathetic tone as it was conditioned by the above experiment consequently slowing heart, relaxing muscles and promoting digestion. If you reverse this experiment, imagine the same image and try inhaling simultaneously you would condition a sympathetic arousal similar to a fight and flight response and if repeated it would escalate towards a panic attack.
